We’re loving the bright colours of rainbow stripes all over the ‘Gram, and are really liking this microtrend of stripes, but not just stripes – multi-coloured rainbow stripes that are inspired by the ’70s and perfect for the summer. Most people may shy away from wearing lots of colour, but there is an easy way to do it. We show you how:

1) T-shirt

We love the vintage vibes when it comes to the rainbow stripe Tee. A classic knit tee goes so well with your favourite pair of medium stonewash denim shorts or jeans. Keep it casual and simple to pay homage to 70s for that throwback feel!

How to wear multi-coloured stripes:

  • Pick a more subtle print – choose more muted multi-coloured stripes. These prints are more washed out or toned down versions of the multicolours, so that the colours aren’t too busy and distracting.

  • If you’re ready to be loud & proud, pick a bright toned item to make a statement with your outfit. You’ll be guaranteed to turn heads!

  • Keep the rest of your outfit simple by matching with black and white clothing items.

  • Think fiesta and resort vibes, and add that fun rainbow stripe piece as an addition to your resort and summer looks.

  • Wear with attitude! Warning: wearing bright and colourful clothing may affect your mood!
